Neuropsychopharmacology reviews the principles of pharmacology with a focus on the central nervous system and autonomic nervous system. Beyond autonomic and central nervous system pharmacology, this volume uniquely discusses psychiatric disorders and the pharmacological interventions that are available for conditions including depression, schizophrenia and anxiety disorders. With a focus on these specific body systems, readers will see end-of-chapter questions that offer real-world case studies, as well as multiple-choice questions for further learning. Beneficial features and content also include two extensive examination tests, which each contain 100 questions for better learning or to be used in teaching, and a glossary.
Helpful appendices cover high-alert medications and toxicology effects on the nervous system. Each chapter will contain classifications of medications, pharmacokinetics, mechanism of action, clinical indications and toxicities.
